Projects — creating digital editions

Electronic Enlightenment is involved in numerous projects involving academic editors working on sets of manuscripts directly from archives, researchers using EE data to generate new kinds and views of information, translators providing new linguistic access to the letters, and publishers contributing new or already published collections.

Don’t hesitate to with a proposal for collaboration!

Within each Electronic Enlightenment Project space we present a navigation tab providing an “Introduction” to the Project, and a “Collections” tab listing materials relevant to the Project topic. “Collections” will provide newly added letters and associated materials (accounts, publications, portraits, maps, etc.); links to specific, highly relevant documents already published in EE; and, in certain cases, a reference to an entire edition of letters focused specifically on the relevant topic.
